For what its worth, changing the NIC fixed it. I've got an onboard rl0, called "the worst ethernet controller ever made" in the source to atleast 170Mb total, I think it will go higher, thats just our internet traffic, I haven't done any local tests yet to see if we can max it out... The controller in question was a 3COM 3c980C-TXM. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
